What is the Summer Invitational for Educators?

IMAGINE YOURSELF:
  • joining a nationally acclaimed professional learning community that puts the knowledge and voices of teachers at the center;
  • discovering the power of your own writing and scholarly inquiry;

  • spending time gathering fresh tools and effective strategies for reading and writing with the Common Core
  • having a professional home that connects you to the support, resources, and opportunities that will help further your career.

ABOUT THE INSTITUTE:

The Long Island Writing Project (LIWP) Invitational Summer Institute brings together a select group of reflective practitioners in all academic content areas and at all grade levels, kindergarten through college. Supported by the LIWP and each other, these teachers will be immersed in writing, reading, and teacher inquiry, ultimately returning to their classrooms empowered to bring their students to higher levels of performance. In addition, as LIWP teacher leaders, they will have a multitude of opportunities to continue their own professional development. In this way, the summer institute represents the first step in what thousands of writing project teacher-leaders around the country have described as a career-transforming journey.

CREDITS: Sixty hours of the Invitational Institute can be used for in-service credits;
$300.00 stipend will be awarded upon completion.
Hofstra graduate hours may also be available upon application with paid tuition.


The Long Island Writing Project at SUNY Nassau Community College is an approved Sponsor of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) pursuant to Section 80-6 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, New York State Education Department (NYSED).

The Long Island Writing Project

The Long Island Writing Project (LIWP) is an official site of the National Writing Project, part of a federally-funded network of 200 sites nationwide and eight sites in New York State. Through our work with teachers in Nassau and Western Suffolk counties, we seek to improve writing, reading and learning in area schools. Since our inception in 1993, over 1000 teachers have participated in our programs.


The LIWP comprises teachers from kindergarten through university. Our seminar leaders are outstanding educators from different grade levels and disciplines in local schools, and we have a strong, ongoing partnership with Hofstra University's Department of Literacy Studies. LIWP teacher-consultants keep up with research and changes in education and their work is grounded in practical classroom approaches. Through our model of teachers teaching teachers, participants in the LIWP strengthen the classroom strategies they already find effective in teaching writing and develop new ones.

One of the most important foundational beliefs of our Project is that teachers improve their knowledge of teaching writing by writing themselves. Another is that the best way to improve our own teaching is through sharing what works with other effective teachers. We welcome your inquiries, and look forward to writing, learning and teaching with you.
